DIKSIA.COM - Not only leaks related to the iPhone 15 series, the release date of which is unknown, but also leaks of the next generation of Apple phones, the iPhone 16 series, are discussed in detail.
This time for the highest variant, the iPhone 16 Pro Max, which is said to have a super-telephoto periscope camera.
According to MacRumors, the iPhone 16 Pro Max could be the first to feature a super-telephoto periscope camera for dramatically increased optical zoom if these rumors are true.
The designation “super” or “ultra” telephoto is usually assigned to cameras with a focal length of more than 300 mm.
It would be able to drastically enlarge and draw in distant subjects.
The telephoto cameras on the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro have an equivalent focal length of 77mm.
That said, if it's true that the iPhone 16 Pro Max's telephoto camera has a focal length of more than 300mm, that would be a huge improvement.
Super telephoto cameras are commonly used for sports and wildlife photography.
The ability to create very soft backgrounds can also be useful for portrait photography as long as there is sufficient distance between the subject and the photographer.
With next year's iPhone 16 Pro model, Apple reportedly plans to bring a telephoto camera to both “Pro” models.
The iPhone 16 Pro Max with super-telephoto periscope will allow Apple to maintain differentiation between the two “Pro” devices over the next year.
A leak that surfaced on Weibo also mentions that the iPhone 16 Pro Max will have a 12 percent larger camera sensor, measuring 1/1.14-inch.
The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max currently feature a 1/1.28-inch sensor, but we probably won't expect an increase in sensor size in this year's iPhone 15 Pro Max.
The larger sensor can increase the dynamic range and background blur of the iPhone's main camera.
It can also greatly improve low-light photography opportunities, as the larger surface area can capture more light for the same shutter speed and aperture.
